    Default Updated to 5.0.1 and now i cant restore from back (iphone 4)
    I have a iphone 4
    updated to 5.0.1 from 4.3.5 (did the no bb update)
    gevey ultra

    so i updated to 5.0.1 with the no bb update via redsnow.

    the phone works great but when i plug into itunes to do a restore from back in order to get all my contacts and pics it doesnt give me the option.

    when i go to edit> preferences > devices i can see my previous restores there.

    i really need to restore from a back up in order to get my contacts.

    please help

    thanx

    Your contacts is stored in your computer via itunes. You don't need to restore from backup, just sync back your contacts

    If you have no other choice beside doing a restore to 4.3.5. I would suggest to do the following steps:
    1. Use iFaith to create a signed custom firmware for 5.0.1 (just in case you want to restore at a later time)
    2. If you have SHSH saved by Cydia or Tinyumbrella the a restore to 4.3.5 is possible. Otherwise, don't bother.
    3. Use older version of iTunes to restore 10.4 or 10.5.0 to avoid Error(1) on restore to 4.3.5

    Good luck
